Sorry for not posting this in the Tosa forum but there's like 20 sticky threads in there so I figure it would probably be overlooked (and it is Android related too).

I would like to try getting Android on the 6000 but I'm not really sure how to go about doing it.

Do we have to use the Angstrom distribution kernel and put Android on top of it (like how cortez is doing it on the 3000)? Is there some way we can make an easy to flash distribution?

I'm not really sure where to start, and some things that might be obvious to others are unknown to me (for example, I can't figure out how to turn the tar.gz packages built by the Angstrom auto-builder into an installable image for my 6000) so I need help. But, I'm a pretty quick learner and if anyone's interested in helping me I'd like to give it a shot.

Android with Angstrom could be the modern OS that revives our 6000's and makes them useful again!

a cool idea. yeah, I'd start by installing the smallest angstrom image possible, then copying in the android rootfs, and using cortez's chroot method.

when you know that works, it should be possible to do away with chroot and simply merge the android directory hierarchy with angstrom

finally, use the D+M boot option to take a rom snapshop and publish
